flexAEM Training Courses

McLane Environmental team members have presented short courses and seminars across the country on topics including hydrogeology, groundwater modeling, exposure and risk assessment, and wellhead protection. flexAEM system in-person training courses are the fastest and easiest way for busy professionals gain an introduction to the power, flexibility, and easy-of-use of analytic element groundwater modeling.

Upcoming Courses

Rapid Design & Analysis of Groundwater Remediation Systems

September 28th and 30th, 2021

A short course for environmental professionals responsible for designing, analyzing, and evaluating groundwater remediation systems.

The Quantitative Conceptual Site Model Approach: Maximizing the Utility of Your CSM

QCSM Short Course - Bordentown, NJ

Coming soon - check back for announced dates

This half-day workshop is designed to take environmental professionals beyond the traditional qualitative Conceptual Site Model (CSM) by adding an overlay of quantitative information that sharpens decisions and provides documented support that can be important to an LSRP’s, or other environmental professional’s, practice.

Groundwater Modeling for the Site Professional - Fundamentals and Applications

Coming Soon - check back for announced dates

This webinar is intended to familiarize LSPs and other site professionals with fundamental concepts and practical applications of groundwater and soil zone modeling. Modeling analyses can be utilized to guide site investigation activities, provide a quantitative basis for Conceptual Site Models, and support remedial decision making.

The webinar will provide an overview of the many uses of computer models in groundwater and environmental projects, with an emphasis on analyses performed to support site investigation and remediation. This will include the modeling process, from model conceptualization and software selection, to model development and application, and preparation of the model report. Examples will be provided to illustrate proper application of the modeling process. Finally, a case study will be presented.

The second part of the webinar will provide a discussion of soil zone modeling software, and a series of practical examples demonstrating how software can be used to guide site investigation and remediation activities. A detailed discussion of MODFLOW will also be presented. Finally, a step-wise modeling exercise will be presented, which walks through the model development process by starting with relatively simple tools and analyses, and building complexity until the desired level of accuracy and confidence in model results is achieved, and project objectives are met.

This course requires no previous modeling experience, and will appeal to LSPs, environmental professionals, and others responsible for implementing and overseeing environmental investigation and remediation activities where groundwater or soil zone modeling has been (or could be) utilized. In addition to instruction detailed above, attendees will also be provided with additional materials, including selected modeling software and guidance documents, self-paced groundwater modeling training exercises, and a reading list containing references to useful modeling.
